The former lawmaker representing Kaduna Central Senatorial district, Shehu Sani, has reacted to the plan of Shoprite to exit Nigeria.
The human right activist noted that Shoprite’s exit from the country would help the local supermarket in the country to grow.
Shehu who took to his Twitter account wrote: “If Shoprite wants to stay, they can stay; if they want to go, they can go; it will help local supermarkets to grow.”
The company stated this in its “Operational and Voluntary Trading Update” released on Monday.
According to Shoprite, the decision was due to the effect of the COVID-19 outbreak.
